Bespoke Ayurveda

Bespoke Ayurveda

Everyone needs a gateway to unleash their truest self and start on a journey to a healthy mind and a nourishing body. Ayurveda treatments have been scientifically proven to declutter our minds and plant the seed of wellness in our bodies. Being aware of all your actions and your connection to the subconscious is imbued through the ancient practice of Panchkarma and ayurveda practices.

Although Ayurveda and Panchakarma are famous throughout the world, the traditional physicians of Kerala developed certain unique management modalities for this. These modalities are basically the Sneha and Swedhana karmas, famously called Keraleeya Panchakarmas. At Namami, we focus on accomplishing and being mindful using our wide range of ayurvedic treatment modalities and Kerala special, Keraleeya Panchakarma. The calm, refreshing, and serene environment of Namami Health welcomes you to the world of self-discovery, mindfulness, a healthy lifestyle, and a place to awaken your senses and open doors to happiness.

Kerala-specific treatments

Chavutti Thirumal

Chavutti Thirumal or Chavutti Uzhichil is a unique form of massage that originated from traditional martial arts forms of Kerala, Kalaripayattu. It requires extensive expertise and experience since the process involves massaging the marma points (vital points where two or more types of tissue meet) of the body. 

  • Ropes are hung from the ceiling of the treatment room so the therapist can balance on the rope while massaging the patient lying on the floor at a specific position to enable optimal energy flow.
  • The procedure involves manipulating the marma points.
  • This massage requires intense focus and expertise since every marma point of the body has specific and firm pressure requirements.

 

Benefits

  • Stimulates the body’s immunity 
  • Sports injuries,spine-related complications, muscular pain, nerve-related disorders, and certain structural deformities.

Thalapothichil

A traditional Ayurveda treatment from Kerala is effective in treating different psychosomatic disorders. The usual duration of the treatment is about 30 to 45 minutes depending on the condition.

  • The person is made to sit in a comfortable position. A gentle oil massage is given to the head with specific medicated oil. 
  • A herbal paste is freshly prepared by cooking it with buttermilk after carefully assessing the condition of the person. The paste is applied over the scalp in a layer of thickness of about 0.5 to 1 centimetre, leaving a small central portion. 
  • A medicated oil is filled in this groove. The paste is then covered with leaves (plantain or lotus leaf)  and cloth leaving the groove open.
